New workshop at Bard: Heidegger for Historians - History as Conservation.
This workshop is focused on Martin Heidegger’s most concentrated engagement with thinking about history, his 1926 summer seminar on Johann Gustav Droysen’s textbook on historical methodology (Grundriss der Historik). While Heidegger’s teacher, Heinrich Rickert, was a central figure in the late nineteenth-century German debate about what constituted historical knowledge (as opposed to natural scientific knowledge), and while history was the subject of the public lecture that marked his entry into university life in 1915 (“The Concept of Time in the Science of History”), and while history occupied a major role in Being and Time, his classic work of 1927, that 1926 seminar, which was his most direct engagement with academic history and its practice has neither been published, translated, or commented upon.
